DAKAR 2013: stage 9

Four TCX riders on the top five in the nineth round, 852 km long run (including 593 of special stage) from San Miguel de Tucuman to Cordoba with the first victory of "le roi" Cyril Despres who started the "turbo" to its KTM. And in fact the French began the final push towards Santiago also due of the penalty in the marathon stage which forces him to push hard to recover additional 15 min. Excellent third Botturi and his Husky more and more confidental during the race  and also Rodriguez and his CRF seem to understand how to manage the forces in a race full of pitfalls and unexpected as the Dakar is. Portuguese factory KTM rider Faria, with his fourth place of the stage, jumps to the top of the overall advantage of its regularity 'placements and now seriously think of a nice ending.

Tomorrow tenth stage from Cordoba to La Rioja, with 357 and 636 km of special stage.
